Gear Aid Tenacious Tape Fabric Repair Tape

user rating: 4.5 of 5 (5 reviews)

Stronger and more aesthetic solution than duck tape.

Reasons to Buy

  • Stronger and stickier than duck tape
  • Easy storage
  • Simple to use

Reasons to Avoid

  • Small chance that tape won't come off from backing
  • Not a lot of tape for the price you pay

This is the only gear repair tape I've used, but I'm pretty happy with the results. I got this tape with the intention of repairing this terrible tear that I created on interior fabric of my rain jacket. I cut out a generous amount and applied it directly to the tear. The great thing about this tape is that so far, none of the edges of the tape have frayed after application. I will probably buy more for future use. This tape is a much better solution that duck tape to fix holes and your gear will have a much longer lifespan. I also applied it to where the tape seams have started to break. It even worked on the back of my shoe where a hole started to form.
